Student Advisory Group

About UCBHSSP's Student Advisory Group

In December 2021, the UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project will launch its first student advisory group. This group of diverse high school students from across the Bay Area will engage in directed inquiry to research, write and share undertold histories of the Bay Area with a broader public. Their work will, in turn, inform the work UCBHSSP shares with history teachers and will grow our understanding of the history of our communities.

Are you a Bay Area high school student?

  • Learn about the people's history of the Bay Area?
  • Research, write, and share the history of your community?
  • Connect to other Bay Area students who love history?
